Friday evening (Jan. 13th) marks the return of The Infamous Stringdusters to The Orange Peel in Asheville. They last rolled through town at The Peel in late 2015 (click here for FRF photo gallery), and were in the area this past summer headlining at the Pisgah Brewing Company's outdoor stage (click here for FRF photo gallery).

Every Stringdusters' show is a treat, and there's no tellin' what they'll be serving up this time around. No doubt, we'll hear a few new tunes from their soon-to-be-released album, Laws Of Gravity (Compass Records), mixed in with a few crowd favorites, and maybe even a cover song or two.

Opening for the Stringdusters is rising bluegrass picker who goes by the name of Billy Strings. Strings, whose real name is William Apostol and originally hails from Michigan, now resides in Nashville and is quickly making a name for himself on the bluegrass and jam band circuit. Providing the intro to veterans such as the Infamous Stringdusters should prove to be a perfect complement of talent from start to finish.

With Appalachia now into a mid-winter and mid-week thaw after a cold and snowy first weekend of 2017, what better way to treat some cabin fever than to get out to The Orange Peel for a night of jammy bluegrass, and some serious Americana pickin' and grinnin'?
